Our Billing Policy
We are a mixed billing practice so we do a combination of both bulk-billing and private billing.
Our doctors have different billing policies so please review carefully below to understand each doctors specific billing before booking with your doctor.
To understand how the gap fees work and the correlating expenses please review the private billing table below.
There are also specific out of pocket expenses for procedures which are also outlined in a table below.
Dr. Pat Rositano, Dr. Alex Burmey and Dr Ali Raza
From Monday - Friday, between 9am and 1:45pm they will bulk-bill all patients with a valid Medicare care card who have an appointment. Walkin patients incur a fee.
From Monday - Friday, from 2pm onwards patients will incur a $25 gap fee.
On Saturday, all appointments will incur a $25 gap fee.
Dr. Nadia Clifton
Dr. Clifton charges a $25 gap fee for all appointments regardless of time.
Private Gap Fees
How do they work?
The way the gap fee works is you pay the initial Fee (as outlined in the fees column) and then then Medicare Rebate is the money that you can claim back from Medicare.
When you pay for the fee we can give you the rebate on the spot as long as you have a physical debit card with you for the rebate to go back onto.
If you do not have a physical debit card on you then we will print you off a receipt in which you can make the claim online yourself.

Fee Table Run Down
**Please not that these fees apply specifically for a $25 gap fee. If the gap fee increases (for procedures etc.) then the initial fee will also increase accordingly.
Patients WITHOUT a Medicare card
For patients who DO NOT have a valid Medicare Card, will have to pay a private fee.
We DO NOT process any overseas insurance on site. After you finish the appointment with the Dr. we will give you a hardcopy of the tax invoice which you can then use to make your claim with your overseas health insurance (if you have overseas health insurance).
**This is a rough guideline for the prices charged for private patients. It can also be at the doctors discretion whether they charge you less of more depending on the nature of the consultation.
We do various procedures on site at the practice including:
Implanon insertions and removals
Ultimo Medical Practice charges a fee for most procedures performed during your consult. This fee covers the cost of the various equipment that we use including dressings, surgical equipment, anaesthetic, sutures and cryotherapy.
Your doctor will inform you of the out-of-pocket costs prior to commencing. For your safety and wellbeing, we only use sterile and disposable equipment.
Please inquire at the front desk or call us on 9212 1400 for procedure fees and the costs associated as they all incur different prices.
